"Anyone with a serious interest in the future of education will
find this book provocative, prescient, prescriptive, and pivotal.
It is a must-read for those responsible for preparing educational
institutions at all levels for their new role in our networked
society."--Vinton G. Cerf, senior vice president, MCI WORLDCOM, and
chairman, Internet Society



"Transformative. That's what networks are; that's the role our
institutions must fill for society; and that's what our leadership
must be. This book provides valuable insight into networks and the
challenges we must address to ensure that higher education thrives
in the Knowledge Age."--Molly Corbett Broad, president, University
of North Carolina



"This book will prove essential to presidents and other campus
leaders who must plan for, and invest in, the networking
infrastructures that will powerfully impact the futures of our
institutions."--John Hitt, president, University of Central
Florida



"All of educational practice will eventually contribute to the
creative and fast-paced links that we know through the Internet.
The thoughtful essays in this volume can, indeed, help us prepare
for that future."--Jane Margaret "Maggie" O'Brien, president, St.
Mary's College of Maryland



This first volume from the EDUCAUSE Leadership Strategies series
examines the changes and challenges that the advanced Internet2
will bring to higher education campuses everywhere. Edited by Mark
Luker and featuring the insights of experienced campus leaders and
information professionals, this forward-thinking guide provides a
roadmap to the extraordinary capabilities of the advanced Internet
to come. The contributors reveal how this new networking
environment will affect business operations, academic instruction,
libraries, information management, regional partnerships, federal
funding, policy decisions, and more. Each chapter offers specific
recommendations and strategic advice to help institutional leaders
make complex decisions about the future of networking on their
campuses-such as when, how, and how much to invest in upgrading
current technology to support the new networking environment. Far
from a technical study, Preparing Your Campus for a Networked
Future is a pragmatic exploration of what leaders can do to prepare
for continually evolving technology.
